Carolyn asks: What’s your favorite way to eat corn?


Potato salad: Scalloped potatoes with corn, bacon, and any other additive you would like!

My favorite way to eat corn is to baked/cooked over the grill on the cob.

Corn fried in mixture of olive oil and a little bit of butter, sprinkled with sea salt and pepper. For a change I also add chopped fresh tomatoes.

Thanks for this article. I was at the grocery store last week, and saw a friend of mine. I commented to her that the fresh corn looked good today, and she said, but it causes belly fat. Since I am a certified nutritionist, this comment alarmed me. I am printing this article to give to her. Corn flakes may cause belly fat, but not fresh corn!

barbqued on the grill is the best

Boiled on the cob for 9 minutes...or less. Then eat! You can add butter and salt and pepper if you like but it is great without it if it is really fresh and young.

Please keep in mind that much of the 'bi-colour' sweet corn is, in fact, Genetically-Modified corn and therefore, no longer a healthy choice. Up here in Canada, a number of local farmers are passing off Bt corn and the above mentioned bi-colour corn as 'sweet corn' and supposedly fit for human consumption. Be aware of the difference.

COrn is great as long as you are buying it organic. Somewhere between 80 and 90% of the corn crop in the US is genetically modified/genetically engineered. Research findings are coming out now that GE/GM foods are not healthy for humans or test (lab) animals. So why risk your health and that of your family's by eating non-organic corn?
